Abstract

The subfamily Mydinae is exclusively American and is here divided in 4 tribes: Dolichogasterini, nexo (only genus, Dolichogaster Macquart); Messiasiini, nexo (only genus. Messiasia d'Andretta); Phyllomydini, nexo (only genus, Phyllomydas Bigot); and Mydini Latreille with 3 genera : Mydas Fabricius; Ceriomydas Williston; and Mapinguari, gen. n., for Mydas politus Wiedemann, from Amazonia). Ceriomydas Williston is redefined, and several species transferred to it; its present composition is the following : 1. brederi (Curran, 1951; Bahamas); 2. crassipes (Westwood, 1841; Brazil : Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo); 3. cubanus (Curran, 1951; Cuba); 4. darlingtoni, sp. n. (Dominican Republic); 5. fraudulentus Williston, 1898 (Brazil : Mato Grosso); 6. gracilis (Macquart, 1834; Cuba); 7.? tricolor (Wiedemann, 1830; Cuba); 8. vespoides, sp, n. (Brazil : São Paulo).
